Tha nature of iho Turkish Creed is a little

character. Some of its poiuts are curious euouzh
The Turks insist upon the unity of God. They

Mary and was concivcd by tho " Ranali which
is the breath of tht spirit of (lod. Thoy bolteve
that he was a great rronhet that he had the now
cr of performing miracles that be loretold the
coming of Mauoinet, who is also no more than a
prophet. They btliove Christ shall come and judge
the world that he ahull reign Tyrty ; years in
Damascus, during which time Anti Christ shall
arise, nitor whose destruction Christ shall asccuJ
iu'a heaven, and then tho day of Judgment shall
ho held. Thry beliv! thai the Gospel w. is stilt

The Melon SredYThe Mills Foint Herald
gives a sketch of great interest relative' to a law
ycrol this city. It is a column lonir. and wo must
condense it. , It relates, that at a restaurant in this night ,waa assembled a party of young
reoies, i me invitation of one of- their number
who had lust taken out license to nrnctice law in
Louisiana , The host alter drinking much wine,
got boisterous, and looked nround, anxious to find
somebody to insult, lie at last discovered a Hparn
old man in a corner, at whom he commenced firing
melon seeds Irom between the thumb and. finger.
The first one hit him on the left ear. Tho second
struck his band, and tho third rebounded from hi
breast. i ' v
" You ere a bad shot." said the old man. risin-r
" I will give you a few lesjons," and he handed
his card. The parties met with pistols next morn
ing on the Shell Road, near the halfway" houo.
The Creole fired first, and missed. v
' Monsieur," said the stranger, " you aro too
hasty and you bear too hard on th trigger, but it
is my (urn, I advise you to stand coot and firm,
the least variation might cost you your life. Vou
aimed at my eje yesterday, but hit my ear it
was well you missed." " l)e raised the pistol, and
muttering "Monsieur' fight"' ear," be tircd--the
lower lappel of the right ear was' shot away.
" One losson 'at a ' time," said the unknown, " is
enough ; tiere,sir, is your first melon eeed;Adiea,
you shall hear of me again." i. "
Twelve mouths -had passed tho occurrence
above related was almost forgotten by tho actors
when one evening at the Theatre I Orleans, the
Creole fell a slight tap on the shoulder ; he turned,
and the mysterious stranger bfthe restaurant stoo l
by his side. " Monsieur,'' whispered ho, " I owe
you another Icssgsare you at leisure tomorrow
morning ? ' " ,
" A totre tenict, Monsieur." ' ft
They met again, and the Creole missod. Suid
the old man " you have tint improved much since
your ta-st lesson. Yurrecoad shot at the restau
rant struck my hand, therefore this goes on tin
samo'""sriot,'and''"at"'Ihd'"'firii5gor'llioiistol,'ihe Creole's left hand huiiK in shreds to Ins urm.
" The next time we meet, Monsieur, your breast
shall be tho taiget," cxcluunnd tho unknown, as
he banded over the second melon wi-d carelully
wrapped in a piece of par. Au rteoir."
( Iho Creole recovered but lost his hurits, and.
was a changed man. . .. .
A low weeks ago, the Creole received a smiill !
package from Havana, accompanied by a letter
from a hotel kecfier thcro, suiting that tho said
package was ordered to be scut to Ins address by a

A Norman Pilot and hi family The "Ex
cursions in Norms'idy" give, the following vivid
description of a bold and fearless Norman Pilot:
" In Iho night of the 314 or August, 1777, in a
most tremendous storm, a vossol attempted to run
into the harbour of Dieppe. U iUssard, the IMot,
who was nuyer missing whim the tempest raged,
was on the pier, and seeing that the Captain of the
ship inado suveral false manus ivres, he called to'
hi ul will) his speaking truinict, directing him
what to do, and- strove by his gestures to render
himself, intelligible. Owing to tho storm and
darkness bit c(lorta proved unavailing, and iho
ship struck about thrity fathoms above the pier.
Everv bodv excentin? Uousssrd trave up the crow
for lost. Determined to aave them, he was going
to tiO; a Irpe around his body and carry it to the
ship ; but bis wife 'and children and bis friends
surroundAd him and besought him by all that is
sacred, not to rush uselessly into utter 'destruction.
Uoussard listened only to 1 he voice of humanity,
und he at length, prevailed opon them to take boinA
his wife and children. V'"r-v-4'
Having tied one end of Iho ropo To his boiK-.nud
fastened the other to the piert he plunged mto tb
sea. rl wsmty tilings did the wavrs hurl him back
upon the beach, and fa'afton did he plunge tigaiu
into the raging billows. A fresh wave flung him
towards tho ship, and ho disappeared beneath bet.
' A gonerat crj of horror proclaimed his destruction
- nut no had only aivea to lay hold ol a sailor wnoin
the sea swept from the dock, and' whom ho con
trived to take senseless to the shore. 'A last at
tempt to reach-the ship proved successful ; ho
climbed her side, and conveved to tho rew then
rope by which they-wcre drawn'asliore.ohe after
.ano her. liut Uoussard had not yet finished Ins
glorious work. Exhausted with his exertions, lie
was conducted by his friends to the nearest house.
A gust of wind wafted to the shore the cry of a
passengor who had been left behind, and Boussard
sum learned that there was another (bllow creature
to save, lie felt his strength renewed, and before
those about him we're aware, he had rushed but ol
tho house, plunged again into llio seaTaud was
battling viih the same dtfliculiies which he had
bolore r-ocouniered, .md which he overcame with
tho like success. :' ' -
The passenger was saved. Eight out of ten
persons owed" their lives "to his courageiius' exer
tions. Louis XVI made him a present of a thou
sand francs and settled on him a pension of threo
hundred, lie was appointed kceper'of the pier
lighthouse an ollico which has ever since been
held y tho iloiisiard, descending Irom father to
soon and not a year lias passed Unmarked by
deeds worthy of the first possessor. Close to the
parapet of tlie pier, of Dieppe is a pole covered
wiih copper, to uliirh is fa-tened a'chain. Here,
in every orm since 1777, whether in the night
or the dav, a Boussard has taken his station, thug-
ing to iho chain,. nnd served as a warning voice
to those whom i!aoi;er and- the tempestuous sea
pursued into the harbor. And though iho waves
broke over him, though Ihey-waahcd him froinl
